There will be two flavors of the new Kindle rolled out: a WiFi only version expected to be priced at $139 USD, and a 3G capable version for 50 dollars more at $189. With double the memory of the previous Kindle and a sleeker design, this may be Amazon's best Kindle yet as the price is still competitive with other devices on the market like the Nook.
